Queens Hospital Ambulatory Care Pavilion
Six-story building with an exterior façade of precast concrete panels and curtain wall construction. The new pavilion connected to an existing 6-story structure by two (2) 100’ bridges enclosed by curtain wall construction. The two bridges that connected the New Ambulatory Care Pavilion to the existing hospital required that Calcedo install a series of smoke and fire-rated partitions at the main lobby of the hospital, which one bridge tied into. This allowed the public space of the operating hospital to function as usual, without being impaced by the on-going construction. The second bridge tied into an existing corridor/waiting lobby for ambulatory patients; sounds, smoke and fire-rated partitions had to be constructed. Additionally, infectious control guidelines were put in place which assured the hospital and public that all precautions were being taken to make the patient's health a priority.
Calcedo’s contract included slab on grade concrete slabs, interior core, elevators, (5 cars), exterior shell and roof finishes. Total floor area of 144,000 sf; total cost of the project, with site work and other primes, was $40,000,000.
